Sad to say that it has too little enhancements to be called the MVP4 but rather MVP3e or something else with the number 3. The build quality and overall operation of the board is very good but kx59 badly let down by a bad video-core from Trident when did you ever hear someone boasting that he or she has Trident? A blue-screen of death jx59 my test system while it was testing the 16MB-texture speed. AOpen did it finally!

By right, there should be a more visible difference using the older but more superior MVP3 chipset. Windows 98 build 4. After restarting your nx59 should be usable as per normal.

Fortunately you can disable the on-board codec in the Bios in favor of a better, dedicated sound-card. Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. Now this aopenn is similar to that of jx59 i aopdn.
MMX and overclocked it to but I was using 2. Note that I’ve penalized the Stability rating to 3-star due to the video-related issues. Windows 98 Bus Mastering Drivers.

The built-in Trident Blade3D is surprisingly sharp in Windows for it’s Mhz RAMDAC at x, though not like a Banshee, V3 or TNT, it’s quite close to that, but don’t bother with resolutions higher than that, unless you don’t mind headaches from it’s lofty output at higher resolutions.
On board KB L2 cache One 5ns chip. I would say that it’s a very interesting board to overclock indeed. Once you’ve setup your system, power it up and you’ll be greeted to an AOpen logo at the corner of the RAM-test screen instead of the energy-saver logo.
Only now, in this board, the floppy connector has been brought to the front of the motherboard too. The board was damn stable in Windows operation. It uses the old UMA method to use system memory for the video-card’s functions. The rpo connector is in front! Noticed there is no AGP slot?
